Kayco Beyond, distributor for brands Mighty Sesame Co. and Wonder Juice, is announcing that it will be operating Booth #1884 at this year’s National Restaurant Association Show in the south building. Creators of the U.S.’s #1 bestselling tahini in an innovative squeeze bottle, Mighty Sesame Co., will be exhibiting its foodservice sizing at the show. Alongside the tahini will be the popular Wonder Juice line of cold-pressed juices, which includes Beetology, Wonder Melon, and Wonder Lemon, which will now be available for foodservice as well. The National Restaurant Association Show will take place at McCormick Place, in Chicago from May 20-23.
“With more and more people prioritizing their health each year, clean, nutritious ingredients are becoming more important than ever,” says Laura Morris, Associate Marketing Director at Kayco Beyond. “Unlike the past where eating out was a time to indulge and break dieting habits for a meal, people are now looking for better-for-you meals that will make them feel good and not just full.”
Mighty Sesame Co.
At the show this year, Mighty Sesame Co. will showcase its foodservice sized tahini tubs. These will include a 40-lb. Classic Tahini Bulk, a 40-lb. Organic Classic Tahini Bulk, a 6.6-lb. Classic Tahini Tub, and a 16-oz. Classic Tahini Tub. With these sizes, Mighty Sesame Co. makes it easy for any foodservice operator to serve pure, clean tahini that consumers adore. The brand’s tahini is the perfect addition to any dish, contributing a unique, full flavor as well as vital nutrients.
Tahini is a paste made up of crushed sesame seeds, which is often used as a healthy alternative to peanut-butter, condiments, salad dressings, sauces, and more due to its high-fat content of mono- and poly-unsaturated fats—otherwise known as “good” fats. These good fats can be beneficial for brain functioning, heart health, and lowering cholesterol. Tahini is known as a superfood due to a wealth of benefits being packed in small servings. Just two tablespoons of Mighty Sesame Co.’s best-selling Organic Tahini packs about 210 calories, 8 grams of protein, 18 grams of fat, and 40 mg of calcium, as well as other vitamins and antioxidants, making it a great, nutrient-dense addition to nearly any dish. All varieties of Mighty Sesame Co. tahini are vegan, gluten- and dairy-free, kosher, and halal, which makes them a safe option for any kitchen.
Also, at Kayco Beyond’s booth will be brand-new Wonder Juice, the “Curiously Good” umbrella brand that encompasses fan-favorite, 100% cold-pressed juices Beetology, Wonder Melon, and Wonder Lemon. These delicious and hydrating juices are served in 8.45-oz. glass bottles, which allow them to retain their flavor without the leaching of a plastic container.
Cold-pressed juicing, as opposed to other methods, uses a hydraulic press, which allows for the maximum extraction of the fruit and vegetables’ flavor and nutrients. Due to the nutritional benefits and the undeniable flavor, cold-pressed juices have become a popular beverage option all across America. Wonder Juice varieties offer the best of this process, as they use whole, organic ingredients. As such, each of the three sub-brands delivers full, naturally sweet flavor with no additives or added sugars.
Wonder Melon offers three varieties: NEW classic Watermelon, Watermelon Cucumber Basil and Watermelon Lemon Cayenne. Wonder Melon juices are made primarily from watermelons, which are made up of 92% water, and packed with nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Wonder Lemon is available in three flavors: Lemon Basil Jalapeño, Lemon Ginger, and Lemon Mint. Lemons, the base ingredient for all Wonder Lemon juices, are a great source of fiber, vitamin C, and citric acid. Beetology comes in four blends: Beet + Lemon + Ginger, Beet +Veggie, Beet + Berry, and Beet + Cherry. Like the name suggests, Beetology’s base ingredient is beet juice, which is known to be packed with nutrients that make it helpful for inflammatory pain, improve blood flow, muscle recovery, and heart health.
“The team is looking forward to the show and invite anyone to come by the booth to speak about and taste these delicious products,” says Morris. “We are hopeful and excited for the future of Mighty Sesame and Wonder Juice and can’t wait to share that excitement. We’re confident the public will be just as pleased as we are to see our delicious and healthful products begin to show up in their favorite restaurants and more.”
